Sweet remedy for sick turtle returns it to the sea

LOCAL active Jellybush honey was the secret remedy to help green sea turtle Kerrie return to the sea at Byron Bay.

When Kerrie washed up on the beach in August, she was dehydrated, exhausted, sunburnt, and infested with parasites.

The turtle was treated by the team at Australian Seabird Rescue with Jellybush honey, the antibacterial and antimicrobial properties helping her shell to heal and harden.

Medications to cure her internal ailments and a healthy diet of squid saw her rehabilitated and returned to the sea at Main beach Byron Bay.
